    There will be a brief pit-stop on the way to the wild west allowing you to purchase any essentials (sunscreen, sandwiches or water, morning coffee) before we head to the chosen locations for the day. 

    Whatipu offers caving, rock scrambling, sand dune climbs, amazing views and the safest swimming on the West Coast. Also, one of the most picturesque drives in Auckland. If we are lucky we might even find seals or penguins there. 

    Piha offers everything from amazing views, the iconic Lion rock, often big (10+foot) surf crashing through amazing canyons and rocks, adventure swims (in caves and lagoons), river crossings, exciting rock scrambles and some of the most beautiful lunch spots you will find in Auckland. 

    Anawhata is the most remote of Auckland's west coast surf beaches. More big surf, beautiful (and strenuous) hikes, maybe the best photographic beach in Auckland, the monolithic Keyhole rock, and some incredible lagoon swimming. 

    Kitekite Falls is a 140 foot 3-level waterfall. In our tour you will explore all three levels (as long as the group is capable as the hiking is high-level to the mid level) and swim beneath the waters if you wish. There is also a 30 minute hike to and from the falls through a beautiful rain forest which you can enjoy. 

    Lake Wainamou (Bethells dunes) are huge sand-dunes in a vast desert. Walk through a windy sandy creek. Experience (safely) the thrill of quicksand beneath your feet. Run or roll down giant sand dunes. Swim in a beautiful mountain lake. Dive from the little jetty or the tree swing into calm waters. 

    As a group we will pick from these (or a few more) locations that best suit the group and the day. Generally we will do two of the above locations, and eat lunch (not provided) with a beautiful view. 

    You will be returned to your hotel or hostel around 4:00pm ideally sandy, wet, tired and happy.
